how are your excellent models progressing. Have you had any success putting them on water?

I feel sorry to say that I have left them untouched for a long time. There are quite a few distractions, especially the workload I am having. One thing I did is to add scuttles to FUSO. But doing a water surface is still a bit beyond my skill. :(

Some good news is that I acquired a book 'Building warship models: A comprehensive guide to building fine models'. It is kind of the very basic book for model ship building. One plus is that it has a fairly good quality drawing of Lion, probably 1910. Look out, the Lion is coming :) I may obtain another bible 'British Battleships of WWI' for less than 200USD. I have been searching for it (with an acceptable price) for a long time. Can't wait to see it.

Time to work, just hope to have more free time to work on the ships.

Found a photo showing the hoses on deck for preventative fire precaution.

Nice picture.

Any idea which ship is that and which is the one in the background?

Thanks.

Very weak suspicion that these are QEs or other 15" ships.

Nice photo

The 15" guns are really impresive

QE class (?)

I mean Queen Elizabeth Class.

The photo was recently offered on eBay with similar ones that stated (perhaps erroneously) that the guns were 15-in. I assume the ships in each photo were the same, and can't directly recall why I judged them to be QEs

We can see in the battleship between the guns a large, tall & high central part...

That is certainly the 2 funnels in the perspective...

--------------------

We can see also, just under the aft guns, the deck is making a curve.
That is just where were the aft 6" guns casemates...



So QE class

Nice catch. I hope I can notice those small things as well.
